The Gloaming are a band that have been taken to Ireland's collective bosom like few others in recent years.

The trad supergroup have enjoyed huge success and sold-out dates at their previous National Concert Hall runs, and the good news is that they're returning to the NCH for a four-date residency in March.

They'll play March 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th and tickets are on sale from Ticketmaster and next Friday, November 17th at 10am.

Meanwhile, folk icon Joan Baez will play both Dublin and Belfast on her 'Fare Thee Well' tour next March.

As the tour's name suggests, 2018 is to be the 76-year-old's last year of extended touring. She'll play Belfast's Waterfront on March 19th and Dublin's Bord Gais Energy Theatre on March 21st and 22nd.

Tickets for both dates are on sale now.
